M.S. Environmental Sciences & Policy

For this 36-unit program, which involves the completion of a thesis, you will complete, in consultation with your thesis advisor:  

water resources: BIO 572; FOR 506, 563, GLG 451, 575, and 670  

atmosphere and climate: CHM 440/ENV 430; ENV 580, 595, and 596  

land resources: BIO 570 or 573; BIO 660, 663, ENV 530, 540, 540L;  ENV 544, FOR 580 or 582; and GLG 430  

In completing the thesis option, you will work closely with your major professor and others to conduct an original research project, which generally requires maintaining close proximity to the NAU-Flagstaff campus. This option also involves the writing and oral defense of your approved thesis. (Please be aware that you can only count 6 units of thesis credit toward your degree. However, you may end up taking more units because you must register for ENV 699 each semester while you are working on your thesis.)
